    I side with Tavis. Tom Joyner, Al Sharpton and Steve Harvey are the sell outs. Al used to to criticise the President but has since beeen co-opted. Maybe when he changed his hairdo it changed more than his locks. Steve is a comedienne, propped up by ghost writers nuff said. Tavis raises real issues. It’s just sad our President is black and the recipient of his harsh but true criticism. We need to stand for truth and not popularity or ratings or money. If we would support truth tellrs then they would not have to bow to media moguls and in teh end true voices could be heard vice media and radio talking heads.
